This Thursday, May 27, 2021, photo shows the closed Sears in Buena Park Mall in Buena Park, Calif. California state lawmakers are grappling with a particularly 21st-century problem: What to do with the growing number of shopping malls and big-box retail stores left empty by consumers shifting their purchases to the web. A possible answer in crowded California cities is to build housing on these sites, which already have ample parking and are close to existing neighborhoods. Even before the pandemic, big-box retail stores struggled to adapt as more people began buying things online. In 2019, after purchasing Sears and Kmart, Transformco closed 96 stores across the country, 29 in California. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes)

Semakin banyaknya pusat perbelanjaan dan toko ritel besar di Amerika yang dibiarkan kosong karena sudah ditinggal konsumen karena banyak beralih belanja lewat situs internet. Hal ini membuat anggota parlemen negara bagian California berencana membangun komplek perumahan di lokasi bekas kawasan mal-mal yang sudah kosong tanpa mengubah undang-undang zonasi.
